Glorious day for City at Wembley

9:59 am on 17 April 2011

Manchester City have reached the FA Cup football final for the first time since 1981 after a dramatic 1-0 win over arch rivals Manchester United.

United finished with 10 men after midfielder Paul Scholes was sent off 18 minutes from time while the winner came from another midfielder, Yaya Toure, eight minutes into the second half at Wembley.

Toure capitalised on some poor defending to end United's hopes of repeating their 1999 treble of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup.

City, who started slowly but finished far the better team will now face Bolton Wanderers or Stoke City, who meet in their semi-final at Wembley tomorrow with the final on May 15th.
